The Welsh dyke
From Friday 23rd October until 9th November, Wales is going into a stay-at-home lockdown. It's pretty much the same lockdown that we all did last March and April. Pubs and restaurants will close, but nurseries will stay open, primary schools will reopen after half-term, and in secondary schools, years 7 and 8 will return.
A lot of people are saying that the rest of the country should do the same thing - there isn't any kind of wall between Wales an England. Offa's Dyke is no longer a barrier.
The UK is still running around 20k new cases per day, which is very high, and pressure is building up on the hospital system.
